In Joyful Anticipation of Sept. 19th

Our church has a catechism – an instruction in the things we believe and hold dear in Q&A format.  It is the Westminster Shorter Catechism.  And, although it is centuries old (1647), its reverent relevance for us today is obvious.   This Lord’s Day we will corporately rejoice as we answer the first question of our church’s catechism:

Q. What is the chief end of man?

A. Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.

We will say it three times, giving emphasis respectively each time to “glorify God,” “enjoy Him,” and “forever.”  And we will begin to believe that we were made for much, much more than the placebo effects of our temporary idols.
